Use a hexhead bolt…
A jam nut
Plate withthreaded hole
Plate welded toclamp arm
During TestWeld --Rotate boltto adjustpressure onproductionpart
Lanyardremovableparts offixture, sothey stay withthe fixture.
You can useone clampfor holdingtwo parts

Use RAPidBlock™,RB00(Altered) toholdlocatingpins.

RAPidShims™
Weldingcauses heatthat deformsproductionparts.Do not usecompressionspring devisesunless youhave to.
Twoproductionparts …held with oneclamp armUsing REIDcompressingspringplungerassemblies
Sometimes to clear the weld gun…
You have to clamp around a corner.
Clamp Finger
Weld Plate Perpendicular to Clamp Arm
Shoulder screw allows for pivot
Set screw & nut for pressure adjustment
Welded plate extends to prevent finger       flop when clamp opens
Finger presses production part onto rest pad.
More Pointers…. Use RAPid Shims™ under your rest pads
…to adjust location of production part    during testing of the fixture.
These RAPid Plates™ are also shimmed.
RAPid Blocks™RB06…
When shopassembles, dowelRB06’s in place,but do not tightendown thefasteners.
When plate is inplace…
Tighten thesefasteners first….
Tighten thesefasteners last.
When precision isneeded…
